Xia Wang received her B.S. and M.S. of mechanical engineering degree from University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB), China in 1997 and 2000, respectively, and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2003. She joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Oakland University in 2005 as an assistant professor. Her research focuses on transport phenomena in electrochemical conversion devices and turbulent boundary layers. Areas of research topics include:

    • Batteries Testing;(checking out our testing facilities)
    • Physics-based model development for Fuel Cells and Li-ion Batteries;
    • Thermal Properties Characterization of Li-ion batteries and fuel cells;
    • Fast charging strategy for Li-ion batteries;
    • Cold performance of Li-Ion Batteries;
    • Battery Aging and Capacity Fade Study
    • PEM Fuel Cells Modeling, Testing and Optimization;
    • New Materials for Bipolar Plates of PEM Fuel Cells;
    • Scaling Laws and Temperature Profile for the Turbulent Boundary Layer with Heat Transfer;
    • Scaling Laws and Velocity Profile for the Turbulent Boundary Layer subject to External Pressure Gradient.
